A group of parents who fought to keep transgender students out of locker rooms and bathrooms that match their gender identity abruptly dropped their lawsuit against a Chicago-area school district, ending a four-year legal battle that drew national attention.
Students and Parents for Privacy sued Township High School District 211 in Palatine, Ill., after the school board, facing pressure from the Obama administration, voted to allow a transgender girl to use the girls locker room. The case drew national attention as schools throughout the country grappled with accommodating transgender people in bathrooms and locker rooms,(snip)
In 2016, Students and Parents for Privacy sued three transgender students, Township High School District 211 and the Obama administration with legal backing from the Alliance Defending Freedom, which is battling inclusive transgender policies in other schools. The ACLU intervened to represent the students.
Nova Maday, a 19-year-old transgender woman who graduated from Palatine High in 2018, said being barred from the girls locker room was embarrassing and created other difficulties. Since her gym class was conducted in different facilities on the sprawling high school campus and the teacher would write a note in the locker room telling students where to meet, she sometimes had to wander the school to find her classmates. Because the school system dealt with every transgender student on a case-by-case basis, it also meant she had to discuss with administrators where to use the bathroom.
She balked at the notion that she was violating other studentss privacy.
Why should I have to tell everyone: Hi, Im trans! said Maday, who sued the school system in state court for barring her from the locker room. She is not involved in the federal lawsuit. If anything, she said, its a violation of my privacy.

Special snowflake, Nova Maday.
So even if you have a dick and balls, the girls are just supposed to accept it?
Be a man and cut it off.
Queerdom - It’s all about them.
And once again the universe bends to the whims of a mentally disturbed person.
Libs would fight all the way to the Supreme Court. How is it that conservatives don’t/won’t?
This is what they are doing to our youth in the schools. What they are doing effects everybody differently, but make no mistake, it effects everybody, some worse than others.
Follow the bucks and you will understand why the lawsuit was dropped.
Good point. One look at you, they already know anyway.
No, it was an adult MAN they were trying to keep out of their daughters’ locker room.
The Homo Mafia plants in the Bureaucratic Swamp/Media find the critical unprotected area of the family and strike there.
Don’t know, but there are lots of possibilities from the Leftist action plan: Threats against the parents or children, pressure on their employers, blacklisting of any in career field with multiple employers, etc. The Left plays dirty, Conservatives, not so much.
Agreed. You were probably correct on all of those counts.
That battle is lost, and all the other battles against leftist fascism.
May as well grab a rainbow flag and wave it.

I live in Palatine and I can’t tell you how much this sickens me. I’ll have to ask my neighbors who have daughters at the high school what they think of this. Thank God my wife and I sent our kids through Catholic elementary and high schools.
Now let’s see how this is going to impact my already high property taxes.
Unnecessary, because anyone with EYES can see you're a DUDE.
